Hawai`i Speaks Out Against Trump's Ban on Muslims!

World Can't Wait issued a Call for a Protest against Trump's ban on Muslims on Saturday evening.  By Sunday morning other organizations, including Hawaii J20 and the Honolulu Women's March, notified their membership.  As a result, more than 200 people joined Sunday's protest on short notice. This is unprecedented in Hawai`i, and this momentum must be continued and built upon!  

There are many things you can do.  Meet with your churches about setting up a sanctuary.  Speak out in your classrooms and at work.   Put a sign in your window:  "Refugees are Welcome Here."   For more suggestions for actions in Hawai`i we encourage you to go to the Hawai`i J20 website and facebook page.   For news about protests elsewhere, as well as materials, go to

Following are photos from the protest at the Honolulu International Airport:
